Pediatric urology conditions include a wide range of conditions involving the genital and urinary tracts.Often these are congenital (present at birth) and diagnosed as early as prenatally or in infancy in many cases,they are treated and resolved early in life,sometimes through surgical reconstruction.Other times,the conditions are acquired during childhood.
The most common condition seen by pediatric urologists is a urinary tract infection,which occurs more frequently in girls than in boys.An estimated 1-2 percent of children develop a UTI,characterized by blood in the urine,an unusual odor to the urine,or a change in urinary patterns.
